Our horseback riding tour in Samaná was awesome!!! We rode for the whole morning and then had lunch on the beach! We started with taking a ride from about 10 to about noon through woods, where we saw cocoa, coffee beans, bananas, and plantains growing. Then we stopped at a local house that sold: coffee beans, ground coffee, 100% chocolate and this really good coconut candy. They told us how to make homemade hot chocolate that was really good! I learned so much there! One thing that I learned was that coffee beans are red when they are ready to be picked. I also learned that the cocoa beans turn yellow when they are ready to be harvested. Then we rode a short way to the beach where we had lunch. At the end of the ride on the trail to the beach, when the horses knew that they were almost done they went crazy and we got to gallop down the trail to the beach!!! It was so fun!
